Texans vs Jaguars Prediction, Preview, Stream, Odds & Picks

The Houston Texans are still looking for their first win of the season. It’s a bit surprising that they’re still winless, as they’ve been competitive on the NFL betting odds every week.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars are coming off a tough loss but are still 2-2 at the top of the AFC South. Considering they only won three games all of last season, 2022 has already been a success.

This AFC South matchup has plenty of intrigues, but which side is the best bet online? Let’s take a closer look.

Let’s check the latest NFL odds, stats, injury reports, and NFL lines for Texans vs Jaguars. We’ve plenty of Vegas NFL odds for you to consider.

Texans

The Texans lost 34-24 at home to the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4. They fell behind 27-7 at halftime and were still down by 20 with two minutes left in the third quarter.

They didn’t quit, though, as they scored 17 straight points to pull within three – 27-24 – with 8:30 left. They had a real chance to get their first win of the season.

Then they allowed the Chargers a six-minute touchdown drive and watched that opportunity slip away.

The Texans have not scored more than 24 points in any game this season and are averaging 18.3 points per outing, which simply won’t get the job done.

They have been competitive in every game but have been unable to make clutch plays in the fourth quarters of games. They led the Colts by 17 and faltered down the stretch in Week 1.

They led the Broncos 9-6 in the third quarter but couldn’t hold the lead and tied with the Bears late in the game.

This team is competitive, but they’re not finishing well. But, considering they’re getting seven and a half points, they might be worth a bet in the sportsbook as they have a track record of keeping things close.

Jaguars

The Jaguars have fared well this season and could easily be 3-1 right now. They took an early 14-0 lead in Philadelphia last week and were in a good position.

However, Jacksonville allowed the next 29 points before scoring a late touchdown, falling 29-21. They did give the Eagles a good test and still have to view their season as an encouraging one.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence has made significant improvements under new head coach Doug Pederson. He was horribly coached by Urban Meyer last year.

However, he threw an interception and just 174 passing yards against the Eagles and still has a lot to learn. The Jaguars held the ball for only 20 minutes and collected just 219 yards.

That makes it hard to handicap this game, as the Texans might be better than their record while the Jags might be worse.

Texans vs Jaguars Prediction

The Texans are still shaky and the Jaguars are a dramatically improved team. In past seasons this game would have been a total coin flip. However, for the time being, the inclination is to believe that Jacksonville is legitimately better.

It’s a lot of points to lay here, so either take the Texans with the points, the Jags moneyline, or maybe consider the under with your NFL picks in what should be a low-scoring affair.
